Btw, how old is Tatenashi again? All I remember from summaries are that she isn't a 3rd year in the academy.

Tatenashi is a second year, so one year older than Ichika. The reason she's Student Council President is because she's a genius. I'll try to finish chapter 3 summary by Sunday, after that I might either do volume 4 or 5 since vol 1-3 have a big chance to be covered by the anime anyway(and there's already Chinese translation so there's a other person that can do summary for those volume)

Someone mentioned this from a topic in another board, something about the Lin Yin/Ichika duel. This entry at TV Tropes kind of bothers me.

Spoiler for TVTrope's version of the Lin Yin/Ichika duel:


Here was my belief from the images I saw in the LN

Spoiler for My perspective of the whole battle in theory:


So which one was correct?

I wouldn't believe TV Tropes. They're like Wikipedia but worse since the info there is uncredited.

I need Zephyr or Kuro to confirm which one was correct so I can edit that before more potential viewers gets dashed by false hopes

Usually see it posted on MyAnimeLists news forums for the weekly manga sales.

http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=281561

The only LNs I've seen to have multiple volumes in seling around 10k a week for 5-6 weeks are Bakemonogatari (best selling tv series since Eva), Durarara (20k avg per volume which is fantastic and a sequel is a matter of when not if), Bake Test (5k avg but sequel on the way...) and OreNo (20k avg and a sequel will be made for sure..)

So yeah looks like a good chance of IS selling decently and getting a sequel anime, even if it's towards the low end like Bake Test it might be worth it since a small profit from anime + boost in LN and other media is makes a 2nd series an attractive proposition. for its backers.

well, nice if it get second season, episode 3 is 3/4 into volume 1 so that makes 4 episodes per volume. 3 volumes novel would fit into 12 episodes then, and volume 4-6 for second season.

wouldnt it be more convenience if the summaries from kuroishinigami and zephyr replace to first post, or maybe into technology discussion thread?

I think volume 4 would only be saved for DVD-extra OVAs or something.

Since end of v6 has a gigantic cliffhanger and it'd be wierd to end the season there...If a season 2 is ever made, it'd be covering volumes 5 to 7 (or 8 depending how they'll pace)

Well, you're version is closer to the actual scene in LN(i.e there's no kiss there). Since the scene will be aired next week, I'll just put the scene in spoiler tag.
Spoiler for Ichika and Rin's fight:


Well, between my bad choice of word in the fight summary, I suggest you wait for a week instead and watch the fight in the anime XD. I'll try to start writing volume 6 chapter 3 summary tomorrow XD

whatdya mean? ima thinking that the power armor shield will be like Sora no Otoshimono's Aegis system... or becomes 2nd shift (dunno what is it tho since the 1st shift is the berserker mod in which shield power is diverted to blade for 200% hitting power but leaves you unshielded)

lets see... weapons...

CQB (not teh names of thar blades plz)
katana-like sword (houki)
katana-longsword-like hybrid that its hilt is like a saber's (ichika)
chinese polearm *sorry cant identify since my ancient weapon lulz is rusty* (rinn)
lance (tatenashi *needs confirmation since i can see from her in teh LN is a lance*)

RANGE (i dunno... kuro, zeph, confirm me)
rocket pack (cecilia)
energy sniper rifle (cecilia)
mid-range laser (houki *needs confirmation*)
dragoon\gun platform system (cecilia)
laser rifle (charlotte)

i'll expect some variants sooner or later like:
minigun variant
cannon\AT gun variant
shotgun variant (yeah right, seeing as swords are more epic than guns here)
scatter bomb variant
power fists (cpt. falcon anyone?)

inb4 ichika's blade creates a projectile energy slash and is classed as range

Is Laura the only girl who Ichika's been kissed by so far? (it took place in v2 IIRC)

Though I know Cecilia/Houki/Rinnin haven't gotten their kiss yet but I dunno about Charlotte. Can somebody explain.

Charlotte's IS has absolutely no energy weapons whatsoever, and she does have a Cannon and Shotgun, both use the same type of gun you find on warships (namely cruisers)
